Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings ★★★½

I feel quite similarly on this film much like how I felt about Luca, that is a film which constantly wants to be super *out there* and different, and in many ways it does succeed, but alas, it's tied and held back to the brand that's making it. Regardless of all the Marvel™ stuff that is in it, there's still a lot of heart and refreshing character beats to it that make it a nice change of pace to the formula we all know.

As expected, Tony Leung is truly exceptional. And as expected, the action by the wonderful Brad Allan's stunt team is spellbounding. May he rest in peace, what a truly sad loss. Overall, I had a wonderful time! Definitely one of the better ones in the MCU, and I'm very excited to see Simu return as this character down the line.
